To me it sounds like a girl's name, but I think any person named Hiawatha would be judged. It's definitely out there. I think it is a really cool name, but I would never name my child that.

The Hiawatha Belt is a symbol of the Iroquois Confederacy and used in art and imagery and flags. It has a lot of cultural significance.
